2010 Gratitude Challenge: Day 24: Shopping DEALS

Another silly gratitude:  I'm thankful for the sales and deals.  I shop in some unusual places and ways.  I look for great finds at prices I can afford.  One of my fave stores in the Grocery Warehouse.  It's a one store business where they are only open certain days of the week~have LOADS of fresh fruit and veggies for a song~and the very very best deal they have is packaged ends of delux quality  roasted turkey and smoked ham...for a song~no joke!  We buy and eat it about 5-10 packs a week...for this price~$1.39 for 20 ounces...you can't beat it! This stuff is low calorie too~2 ounces is 35 calories!  Today I got out there and purchased our weekly fare.  We just love the fresh veggies and fruit! Sooo got that stuff.  Yesterday I ran to another thrift type grocery and purchased whole grain oat nut bread~you know, that $4 a loaf stuff for FIFTY CENTS a loaf~omgoodness! AMAZING! With bagels large and small!!  I am so blessed that at this time, I don't have to bake my own bread (which I've done as cost saving measure!) each day or several times a week!  Good healthy inexpensive food is such a blessing.

I'm sorry that I didn't get this up on the 24th~I truly passed out early last night~PRAISE GOD!  Wonder what the others are thankful for?  Head HERE!

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL! HUGS!

WOW! Good prices are always something to be thankful for. It helps to stretch the budget just a little bit easier.

A penny saved, is a penny earned, right? And a full belly is nothing to sneeze at, either! That sounds like a very neat place to shop!
